Dreamers vs Doers

Some here have the dream of a light wind near some trropic isle without a care in the world.
Some here dream of this and rightly so !!
Some realize that for this dream to come true you must prepare for the worse.
Some here have gone and made their dream cruise come true be it across the harbor or across the vast expanse of briney salt seas Found it not to there liking and became land lubbbers and rightly so..
Some here are sitting in there boat reading this..
But all here love the wind to take them where they need to go for OUR future is the wind!!!! fossil fuels WILL be a thing of the past and sooner than must think
be it a wind genarator or a sailboat you are the future!!!

I was up in the north-west a couple years back and stumbled across a boat-yard where about 40 acres were covered with boats in some sort of building or repairing. On Saturday mornings, the coffee croud of boat owners(about 6 of them) would walk around talking of their dreams of sailing off into the blue and of remote islands they planned to see.. On Saturday afternoon, you would see these same folks, tinkering around their boats, polishing a bracket or fixing a hinge happy in their dreams.. On Sunday morning, they would load up their belongings and head home only to return the next Saturday morning and repeat the same process..
I soon realized that this 40 acre lot had become a field of dreams and after talking to some of the workers in the boat-yard some of the boats had been in the same spot for over 15 years and a number of them had changed owners a few times...
So some people do sail off into the wild blue, while others are content to take a day each week, leaving all headaches behind, and enter the wonderland of The Field Of Dreams...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You MAY be right about oil; but back in the 1970's the 'experts' were all in agreement that we would run totally out of oil by the 1990's. In the 1990's we had oil at under $20 per barrel after hitting $60 in the 1980's. Things MIGHT be different now but then again, they might not.

Enjoy sailing because you enjoy sailing, it's reason enough.
